Finally, time to relax..
A lot of us had a rough week. Some more than others. A huge protest involving more than 10,000 people in Baltimore happened last week, over the untimely death of Freddie Gray. The death was later ruled a homicide, with six involved police officers charged. A riot also broke, leading to urban chaos Baltimore.
In other parts of the country, many experienced some first world problems. Multiple theaters sold out on seats for the opening day of the Avengers: Age of Ultron movie. Some were not looking forward to the disappointment and waste of money spent on the Mayweather vs Pacquiao fight.
In Seattle, I just wanted to be me. For that, I was hoping to leave the citylife for a day and enjoy some outdoor adventure surrounded by trees and shrubbery. But the errand-doings squandered much of the day, so I instead decided to use the good time leftover by the ol Seattle city waterfronts. The weather was beautiful, and the atmosphere cheery. Here are some highlights of that time…
Back outside Pier 57, the Seattle Great Wheel continues to thrill. I remember not liking this much when the attraction first opened in 2012. Now, I have gotten used to it and appreciate the cheer it spreads.
